By taking the suspense, challenge and visceral charge of the original, and adding startling new realism and responsiveness, Half-Life 2 opens the door to a world where the player's presence affects everything around him, from the physical environment to the behaviours even the emotions of both friends and enemies.

We benchmark Half Life 2 with our own custom timedemos as to avoid possible driver optimizations using the "record demo_name" command and loading the timedemo with the "timedemo demo_name" command - For a full list of the commands, click here.

Half Life 2 managed some slightly more respectable scores than Doom 3. Some of the areas like Route Kanal produced better results than the average, but then there are not as many aspects of the environment to interact with. You could conceivably, if you dialled the resolution down to 800 x 600, play the game all the way through. Performance wouldn't be spectacular, and there would be times when you'd wish that you never started, but it's do-able.
